Element Aluminum Custom snare drums are fully assembled in the SJC Drums factory in Massachusetts, USA. Every single drum is tuned and tested to make sure they leave the shop sounding incredible and ready to play out of the box.
"I have been a drummer for over 20 years, and this is by far my favorite snare I have ever come across! Straight out of the box, the snare had a great sound. Aluminum has the bite of steel, but less overtones and more body. I can tell this snare would be great for live or studio applications depending on what kind of heads you want to use. This snare is also versatile in the fact that you could use it in different styles of music. Ghost notes come through great for jazz or funk players, and you can bash away on it for rock/metal/punk. And don't get me started on the visual aspects of this drum! We all know that the guys at SJC make beautiful drums, and this one is no exception. The hardware that comes on the snare is fantastic too. The throw off is smooth, and SJC's shield lugs and triple-flanged hoops will keep your drums in tune. I am a hard hitter, but I rarely have to tune my SJC drums. I can't go on enough about this snare or SJC in general. Do yourself a favor and order this snare!" - Matt G.
